Why geoenergy?

Green heating and cooling solutions for your properties

Heating costs can be sky-high during the colder months of the year. Aside from straining your budget, many heating solutions are not necessarily good for the environment either. 

Traditional heating methods involve using fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas to produce energy via combustion. Not only are the costs of extracting these fossil fuels high, but they also have an extremely negative impact on the environment. In fact, using the earth’s fossil fuels as a means of heating is damaging in many ways. This includes global warming, an increased risk of oil spills, air pollution, and greater amounts of acid rain, all of which are detrimental to the environment.

Unlike geoenergy, fossil fuels are a finite source of energy, and will eventually run out. Geoenergy is available all over the world. We access this heat beneath our feet – the sun’s energy that is stored in the earth – via drilled boreholes, and we use the bedrock as a heat reservoir. 

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Energy Information Administration (EIA), the most sustainable and environmentally friendly way of heating and cooling buildings is a geoenergy solution with ground source heat pumps (GSHPs). 

While many people are aware of the growing climate crisis and would like to do their part to help, it can often be hard to make major the required changes and decrease one’s carbon footprint. 

Here at MegaWatt Solutions, we aim to upgrade traditional combustion-based heating systems into geoenergy systems. Our system is not only environmentally-friendly, but also customer-friendly. 

There is also good news for property owners. In addition to reducing heating costs,  the use ofgeoenergy solution will also increase the value of real estate.

Innovation within geoenergy

We transform the traditional geo-energy industry with 

  • Rationalized Business Processes
  • Industrialized Production
  • Digitalized Operational Management 

We change manual work into industrialised performance for our  environmentally friendly projects. 

From a healthier building to cost savings, MegaWatt EBox is a smart choice not just for the planet, but for our customers as well.

Our carbon-free intiatives

The focus of the Paris Agreement 2015 is to reduce CO2 as the main effort to reduce rising temperatures on Earth. For reasons unknown, the Swedish Government has chosen to focus on fossil-free rather than carbon-free energy. This is something we regard as unfortunate, since being fossil-free does not include bioenergy. Bio-based sources from forestry should be regarded as the juvenile versions of fossil fuel sources such as coal, oil and natural gas that formed from the decomposition of plants and animals from millions of years ago. Indeed, the combustion of bioenergy generates even more carbon dioxide per kilowatt heating than coal, natural gas and oil.

If we want to help the climate to recover or at least halt the climate crisis, we must not replace fossil fuels with biofuels. Instead, we should focus on using renewable sources as the way to generate heating/cooling without any carbon emissions at all.

We welcome people in the industry who share our dreams to actively respond and join us in our efforts. Let’s work together for a carbon-free future!

Our Vision

We believe that our society will see radical change in terms of how we produce and consume energy. Geoenergy is an energy and space efficient technology to heat and cool properties and, with its limited climate footprint, plays an important role in the shift towards a sustainable society.

Our ultimate aim is abundant clean energy for all people on the planet. And we are ready to lead the way! Our EBox solution presents a real opportunity to harness the power of the sun and earth, performing eco-friendly projects while also cutting carbon emissions and saving money.

Let’s work together to achieve energy democracy.
